Bi-Weekly Dinner Series Featuring Local Wine Personalities

Our Thursdays @The Tasting Table dinner series is our chance to introduce you to some of the fascinating people who we cross paths with while exploring the region’s food and wine. We invite them into our open kitchen to cook, or into our tasting room to pour and discuss their wines.

Our guest hosts can include chefs, winemakers, authors, sommeliers, photographers, food enthusiasts, or others who have something to share. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about Hungarian wine and food from local experts.

These casual evenings have somewhat of a speakeasy vibe, with everyone gathering around big communal tables and food served family-style. Wine is poured generously, and the events are all about enjoying great food and wine in the company of people who like to share their passions.

These dinners tend to sell out quickly … book in advance!

Winemaker Dinner with Dobogó Winery (Tokaj)
Thursday November 29  (7pm-10pm)

We are so happy to welcome winemaker Attila Domokos as our guest winemaker. Domokos is the mastermind winemaker at the small, but highly-regarded, Dobogó cellar in the heart of Tokaj. Founded in 1995 by the Zwack family, the winery is co-owned by Izabella Zwack and Domokos. Their mission is to put Tokaj back on the world’s wine map and make furmint as popular as possible. Domokos will bring a nice selection of their wines to taste—including a surprising wine from Tokaj, a pinot noir! In this white wine region, Dobogó is one of the few wineries to experiment with pinot noir. Chef Tamás will prepare a dinner to pair with these lovely wines, and Domokos will present the region and his winery while telling the stories of these wines. Join us to see why these wines have been praised by so many, including Steven Spurrier, the Decanter World Wine Awards, and Wine Enthusiast.
